Glendale is where I would want to send my own children. The teachers are caring, highly qualified, and full of high expectations for all learners. The staff work together to form a cohesive, loving environment for students and families. The PTO is the most hands-on PTO that I've ever seen. The Spanish Immersion enriches the curriculum, stimulates the learning and language centers of the brain, and helps these students form a solid foundation for being bilingual. Everyone at this school, the principal, teachers, school counselors, school psychologist and the custodians all genuinely care about the students. You can't ask for better!
Glendale is a wonderful public school because the teachers are so dedicated, the parental involvement is tremendous, and the funds from the PTO greatly enhance the curriculum. My son is what they call "twice exceptional" - I couldn't imagine him at any other public school. Although he does not qualify for an IEP, appropriate accommodations for his needs have been met. I LOVE Glendale!
Great teachers, principal, and community of parents! Spanish Immersion program. Very active and supportive PTO!
School year has just started and we are VERY disappointed. This is our first year and there have been so many disturbing things I cannot even begin to detail. The teacher we have will not even look at emails. The principal is condescending and patronizing.
the parents and teachers do not fool around. Everyone is involved and all the kids are loved!
Love the Spanish Immersion - parent involvement is wonderful - Principal is VERY hands on - she really cares
The teachers are genuinely interested in the children, both academically and socially. The support the students in extra-curricular activities. The parents' commitment to the school is beyond any that I have ever seen. This is a first-rate school!
This is the school you imagined when your child was still a toddler---it absolutely resonates with an atmosphere of happiness and excitement. Great academics, enthusiastic parents, joyful students are just the beginnings. The spanish immersion is a great bonus to an already excellent school!
A truly great 'public' school in every sense of the word. Community spirit involved in everything they do. A wonderful village in which to educate our kids.
Glendale offers a wonderful sense of community, an excellent teaching staff and progressive academic ideas. We couldn't be happier at our school!
Glendale has a beautiful community spirit with an exciting Spanish-Immersion curriculum. We're so thrilled to be a part of it!
Glendale is a wonderful school with a global feel to it. Our children thrive here and have developed a strong sense of community thanks to the great learning experience Glendale provides to us all.
Fantastic place. Lovely school, great teachers, fantastic community.
Glendale has a great community atmosphere while teaching our children not just the basics but Spanish,music, and art as well.
I volunteer there and have witnessed the level of commitment the scholl has toward its students and curriculum.
5 years ago when we moved back to Nashville we specifically chose to purchase our home in the Glendale school district. We have not been disappointed! Our 3rd Grader loves it and our son can't wait for Kindergarten to start. The faculty and families have made it a feel like home. I feel lucky to be apart of such a great community.
unique curriculum in nashville, strong staff, and committed community.
Unique opportunity to receive a different (bicultural) education. Great PTO!
Glendale is a great community that not only invests in the school and students but also looks for opportunities to invest in Nashville and beyond. Through programs like the school garden and Glendale Gives, Glendale makes a genuine effort to demonstrate what it means to the students to give back! I also love the opportunity to learn a second language.
I love the community of dedicated and caring parents and teachers who patiently work to teach and nurture the kids.
